    I've been reading so many threads and it's so confusing trying to find exactly what I need.

    If anyone can explain in plain English I would be SO grateful!!!

    So I have a 2016 Leon with the nav + I believe.
    I'm literally about to retro to the 8" screen (I've read the forums on how to do that so I'm ok with that)
    BUT
    I know I need to upgrade the software so I can have the new look with the tiles etc.

    I'll post pictures but I have:
    hardware H30
    Software 0351 (I know 0346 has the tiles but surely I'd be going backwards if I do that?)

    And then if you can tell me what software I need, can you tell me where to get it?

    Once I've updated am I likely to need anything else?
    I have OBD eleven Pro if needed for anything


    THANKS!!

    You can't update to 0346 as that is for the HW024 and you have HW030.

    Apparently 0351 is the latest update for

    I've looked through the main thread on here and the one on the spanish forum but can't find any downloads for it.

    I'd contact your main dealer or MQB-Coding & Retrofit or MQB Retrofits Center on Facebook

    Ah ok thanks! Makes more sense as I thought it was backwards.
    I've emailed my dealer, but for now the screen will still work with 0351 still won't it? I'll just have the old graphics and I'm guessing lower resolution?

    I'll be cutting up around my air vents tomorrow as shown in other threads.
    Seems to all be working, but now with the lack of buttons, the carousel menu style isn't ideal!
    But it will do until I can find this update!

    If you click on HMI versions does it bring up some different skins. Some have 65 in title and I think 1 has 80

    Sadly has everything on this page blanked out.
    I was hoping there might be a way for obd11 to change the skin after this, but still can’t find anything :-(

    You need to press and hold longer. There should be another menu afterwards that's says test mode menu.
    Well there is on mine. [​IMG]

    Have you been through the settings to see if the tiles option is there?
    When i updated to 0346 on mine, it was still the carousel until I found the option to change it in the menus.

    Also, where did you get the screen from and how much was it?

    The tiles are in the menu/settings but to change the resolution to better suit the 8inch screen its hidden in a another menu. Well that's where I found it after doing some googling.

    Ah ok, well yeh that's ideally what I need to get the tiles and update the resolution. So it's all in this test menu is it?
    I've held down the menu button for over two minutes and it won't go past the service menu. It makes a bong noise after 30 seconds but nothing happens

    I'm not sure what menu to go on to find it? I can't get past the service menu which won't let me change anything skin wise on there.
    Just got the screen on eBay, £150 which I wasn't going to complain with!

    Good price for screen.
    The tile settings can be found in the normal settings, been thinking its possible seeing as you have a newer mib2 to me it might automatically detect the 8inch screen and change resolution automatically.
    1 way to check is once 8inch screen is plugged in long press top button and check hmi again. Should end in 80

    It's just on the normal settings. No long press, just the normal settings page.

    Haha, unbelievable. Had it there the entire time.
    Spent hours looking on my obdeleven trying to change it and it's been there the whole time (now I feel stupid!)

    @wolverine_uk sadly hasn't automatically changed the resolution.
    Do you know how I do it? I remember watching a video with someone changing it in developer mode, but my obd was struggling to activate that last night when I was stupidly having a look for a skin change on there.
